Zucchini Bread

This recipe was given to my wife in a home-made cookbook that she received as shower gift from her friend, Glenda. The book contains a bunch of Glenda's recipes written on index cards (great idea, btw!). My wife (the bake of the house) loves this recipe and has gotten tons of compliments on it. It's a great bread to bring to dinners parties. The sweet, cinnamon taste also makes for a delicious treat for the kids to enjoy!


2 cups grated zucchini, unpeeled
3 eggs
3 cups flour
1 cup vegetable oil
3 tspn cinnamon
2-1/2 cups sugar
3 tspn vanilla extract
1 tspn baking soda
1/4 tspn baking powder
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 tspn salt

In a bowl, cream eggs and oil. Add zucchini and vanilla. Add dry ingredients which have been sifted together. Add nuts and pour into two greased & floured 1 quart baking pans. Bake at 325ยบ for one hour.

Makes two loaves.

zucchini bread is a family favorite for us....always goo with a small bit of cream cheese icing too!

I usually top a slice with a bit of butter, but the cream cheese icing is a great call!
